... because it was the best iPhone yet... the only one I ever considered going for (but never quite did). Even iOS 5 couldn't cripple it, so now iOS 6 must be offered to those who will unwittingly cripple their old 3GS's as a result. It is a shame, sort of. The 4 and 4S were never worthy replacements in my opinion, the 4 because of the antenna issues primarily, and the 4S because of the battery issues (both were heavy on the use of glass backs, which I have seen myriads of people shatter by accident and then have to pay Apple Care to repair/replace... so there was another strike for both). However, if the iPhone 5 actually is all that it is reported to be, and does not have any serious issues upon launch (just as its last two predecessors did), then perhaps we will finally have a truly legitimate successor to the 3GS. Even as a non-Apple fan, I have to admit that would be pretty nice.
